Klash of the Titans with Kreator and Sepultura: They’re calling this thrash metal tour the Klash of the Titans, a nod to the old Clash of the Titans tours that featured Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax. This isn’t quite as magnificent, but it’s still good. German old school thrashers Kreator have never let up, and the current lineup of Sepultura proudly keeps the torch burning. Original Bay Area scene-pioneers Death Angel also play, as do SpiritWorld.
Last year saw Kreator release their fifteenth studio album, Hate Über Alles. “The last decade has been a particularly exciting time for the group, with 2012’s Phantom Antichrist proving how they could embrace modern production techniques and move with the times without forsaking the underground spirit and defiance which made them a household name in the first place,” reads the press release. “Its successor, 2017’s Gods Of Violence, saw them topping the German charts for the very first time in their career, a feat virtually unheard for a band of such thunderous intensity. Returning this year with fifteenth opus Hate Über Alles – which marks their first studio album with Frédéric Leclercq (ex-Dragonforce, Sinsaenum) on bass, joining Mille, guitarist Sami Yli-Sirniö and drummer Jürgen ‘Ventor’ Reil – the metal titans are once again channeling an unholy heaviness strong enough to tilt the earth off-axis. Conquering and destroying in the way only KREATOR can, Hate Über Alles will undoubtedly sit proudly amongst the finest metal releases of this year. And so onwards they march once more…”
Klash of the Titans with Kreator and Sepultura: The event takes place at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 27 at the Wiltern.
